7 Things You Must Know About Sharing Trade Secrets On Your Blog!

Blogging, Blogging Beginner's Guide, Featured

I’m sure you already realize as a blogger, one of the very first things you want to do, is establish yourself as an expert in your field. The best way to do is, obviously, through sharing industry trade secrets people can take advantage of and benefit from. The thing is, however, too many bloggers I come across treat their readers like idiots…

Who Can’t Tell Bull Shit
When They See it !

They’re so stuck on the “fake it until you make it” mentality that they’ll do whatever it takes to seem competent even though they actually don’t know what they’re talking about. They try to share tactics they’ve read about somewhere, they’re literally unable to come up with anything original because they don’t have enough experience, they teach strategies they think work, but have never tried, because…

If They Make Sense,
They Must Work,
Right ?

Nope. If you want to share trade secrets effectively, there are a few things you want to keep in mind, or you’ll end up shooting yourself in the foot. Listen up.

1. No Rehashed Crap

You know how it works. Some random Guru shares a cool little trick that sounds good, you rip it off and blog about it as if it’s your own idea. When you do, your blog screams plagiarism, your visitors see it, and…

They Never
Come Back !

2. Share What Actually Works

Every market has thought leaders who, for the most part, have earned position through years of hard work, so you should respect them. That doesn’t mean, however, you should take their every word for granted. Instead, you should make sure as you learn and grow your business, you test.

Why ?

Because if you personally test something and achieve good results from it, then you know it works. What’s more, as you test, you have total control over the conditions the test was conducted in (something people don’t really reveal well.) Lastly, as you go through the process of testing, you’ll have discoveries you’ll be able to test as well, and as you do…

You’ll Have Even More
Trade Secrets to Share !

3. Be Precise

A little while ago, I told you sometimes people don’t give you all the details you need to repeat the success they enjoy. There often seems to be something missing. You don’t want to be that way. While I know most of the people sharing secrets and test results don’t really want to hide valuable information intentionally, they often do so unintentionally (due to lack of planning or thinking it takes to break the process down effectively.) If you have a valuable secret to share…

Be Sure Everything is
Broken Down and
Actionable !

When you create your post, just ask yourself this question: Are my readers able to take what I shared with them and get good, measurable results? If the answer is yes, you’re good. If it’s any different, edit and rewrite, until it actually is yes.

4. Don’t Tease Without Providing Real Value

Sharing trade secrets is an awesome way to get people to buy from you as it boosts your credibility like nothing else. You have to make sure you do it right, however, and the right way to do this isn’t sharing half the story for free and forcing your readers to buy your product for the rest of the story. Sure, you’ll make some money if you do, but it’ll actually…

Hurt Your Business
in the Long Run !

5. Wait Until You’re Ready

If you’re just starting out as a blogger, and really don’t know the market all that well, you should hold up with sharing trade secrets. As you develop and learn, and as you test new things, you’ll naturally learn insider information people will be stoked to hear. That takes time, however, and really shouldn’t be rushed. It is much better for you to be genuine and honest, than it is to share trade secrets you stole from someone else (more on that later.) Your reputation is all your readers have to hold on to when they decide to buy something you’ve promoted, and if your reputation is ruined…

You’ll Have a Hard Time
Selling Anything !

6. You Don’t Matter

The one mistake people frequently make when sharing a strategy or a tip is focusing on themselves. They tell the readers what game they’re playing when they came up with their idea, what time it was, what they had for lunch the next day, or how many times they went to the bathroom before…

They Implemented
the Idea !

Of course I am exaggerating to illustrate my point, but you know what I am trying to get at, right? This whole thing is not about you it’s about your readers and how what you found out can help them. Some unrelated details will make the writing more interesting and fun, but don’t overdo it. Again, as you write about your secret, be precise and specific, and make sure your readers have all they need to be able to…

Repeat
Your Success !

7. Thou Shalt Not Steal

Sometimes, as you research and learn about your market, you’ll come across a great test you’ll be dying to share with your readers. There’s nothing wrong with that, as long as you actually test the process yourself and share the source of the original idea. Do not pretend it’s your idea, because it’s not, and if you’re open about it…

Your Readers Will Appreciate
Your Honesty !

So, there you go, the 7 things you must know if you want to share trade secrets effectively. They’ve become my second nature, and I know you’ll do well if you keep them in mind before you share your next top secret strategy. What do you think? Feel free to share more trade secret tips below. I am looking forward to learning from you.

    The thing I learned a while back about REALLY successful, wealthy people: they gave it all away.
    You receive a great deal of money when you give away a great deal of value. Pretty funny, this post reminds me of the Justin Bieber movie I watched a few days ago. He did not give away trade secrets but he gave away immense value, doing free shows, visiting hundreds of radio stations, giving, giving, giving, for months on end.
    He is not worth hundreds of millions of dollars by mistake. He GAVE away his best stuff – not holding back, not attaching, – and then RECEIVED fame fortune, millions, and more. Easy formula.

    When sowing, never, ever hold back. People who create and give stuff away for free, world-changing, helpful, valuable stuff, become really rich, successful, and are able to inspire the masses. Keep giving it all away, and it returns with increasing less effort.

    Hi Bad Blogger,

    Sharing is Caring. But sharing the secrets on money related is not always good. If we share then they will become our competitor and they may earn more than us.

    So it is always best not to share trade secrets to others

    Reply
    • Wong Chendong 10/08/2013, 4:44 pm

      Sharing is not caring, sharing is giving and when you give, you will gain but not just money you will gain but also knowledge. If you kept your secret, you will forever be left in history though no one knows your secret and in the end you will be outdated.
      The reason for sharing secret is to gain new secret, is the process of learning and gaining more knowledge, hope you understand because if you don’t you will be left behind forever…

    I do give away a lot of trade secrets but I make sure I don’t give away every single thing I have. I leave some of it for ebooks I release. It’s something of a bonus for my subscribers. I also use it as bait. I also like the way you explain the point at which you become an “insider”. Until you get noticed. You’re not one.

    Providing quality content in precise words to the users is important, as user-friendly blogs ultimately rank high, even if the SEO is not so strong., That’s what the recent Google updates have been about, and that’s what I believe in. Thanks!

    There are lots of blogging tips & secrets. But a blogger needs to think which will be for his site.

    thanks for adding valuable information

    All the points are admirable But I have seen many people who just go through them and implement them without a second thought. They have the curiosity in starting a new site but they are unable to keep that sustained. One should frame their own trade secrets and rules and stick to them.

    H Wong,
    It takes time to learn to be a good blogger and when you think you can write good articles, you are still only at the beginning. You can always learn something new, test and retest, the pros will not share all the secrets they have.
    Number 7 is unfortunately the most common among all bloggers.

    These are some great tips to be aware of before writing about trade secrets. Thanks for writing about them. I will definitely try not to write others secrets before knowing properly about them and working on it.

  • Mohsin Ali 22/02/2013, 1:58 am

    Wong I personally think that people just read the experiments on other blogs, implement it, and goes on writing tutorial on their own which is wrong in terms of anything.

  • Dragos 21/02/2013, 11:30 pm

    Well, I think it is a talent to know what to share and in what proportion- and maybe if you are just starting you should focus on other things until you gain enough experience to be able to share “secrets”- I share my experience to my readers without too much “marketing”, I share my results and my failures without any fear and people seem to appreciate the honesty.

    Trade secrets make business unique and make your product different from everyone . Instead of just focusing on your success mantra one should project what can work for most of the readers. Nice share.

    Verbatism in any form is every bad and it stole the chunk of readers who genuinely desired of reading the stuff posted on the blog. Repeating one line in different forms, does not make the meaning more clear, instead it irritates the readers to the core. Being concise and crispy is the key. Thanks for the share.

    Reply
  • John 14/02/2013, 9:32 pm

    hey Wong,

    trade secrets that aren’t personally tested and experimented with, aren’t really worth it… just as you’ve said, they’re just a re-hash of what somebody else said, tried, or both.

    as Bill Cosby (American comedian, actor, author and musician) said it quite well…

    “You know the only people who are always sure about the proper way to raise children? Those who’ve never had any.”

    As for testing… phew! I cannot tell you how many times I’ve seen people (hint- marketers) promise me a full blown product or the “secret” — just to get me onto their mailing list… and what did you think they’ve sent me in return? nothing but sales pitches to their “product” page…

    so you’re going to know the secret only after you buy the product… and guess what happens if you get into their trap? I pray you don’t! They drive you nuts… and make you think there are a few more secrets left out… which, of course, you can access immediately… for only $97! LOL

    did this ever happen to you guys? how do you feel about this approach?

    Reply
    • Wong Chendong aka The Bad Blogger 16/02/2013, 3:59 pm

      Well… if the stuff are really good I don’t mind paying extra to get the best, but if it sucks then surely is not worth it. This is all a sales funnel and that is how marketers earn large amount of money but again as I said if the stuff is good then it will be worth spending another $97 for a better secret.

    Even Google appreciate if you share links to the original idea in your blog’s post.

    The comment above me of Ivin, I agree to him. People just read the experiment, implement into their blog, and goes on writing tutorial on their own which is wrong in terms of anything.

    If they start sharing how they come to learn this strategy, and how they implement into their own by giving credit links. Then not only their readers but also Google will be happy including the one to whom they are giving credit link.

    I can’t underscore # enough.You really come off as a fool claiming soemthing is YOUR original idea if it’s not. The internet is open and the otigianl source WILL come to light. Best say ‘here’s a nifty trick and I heard it from so-and-so’… Better that way.
